New York City-based Neinstein Plastic Surgery announces that board-certified plastic surgeon and breast specialist Anna Steve, MD, has joined its surgical team. Her appointment is the culmination of a three-year-long global search, according to Neinstein Plastic Surgery officials.

Steve, a native of Saskatchewan, Canada, completed her medical residency at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She then completed a fellowship at the University of Calgary in Calgary, Alberta, where she specialized in plastic and reconstructive surgery, hand surgery, and microsurgery. After relocating to New York City, Steve spent two years receiving subspecialty plastic surgery training at New York University, where she specialized in microsurgery and breast reconstruction surgery.

Steve has contributed to several medical journal articles, concentrating on plastic and reconstructive surgery. Most recently, Steve published “Prospective Multicenter Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing Early Protected Movement and Splinting for Fifth Metacarpal Neck Fracture” and “You Helped Create This Help Me Now: A Qualitative Analysis of Patients’ Concerns about Breast Implants and a Proposed Strategy to Moving Forward,” respectively, in May 2021 and January 2021.

Additionally, Steve has published several articles in the PRS Resident Chronicles, the official resident blog of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

In 2018, Steve’s research team at the University of Calgary collaborated with the Canadian Medical Association (CMA) to publish “Best Practice Guidelines for the Use of Smartphones and Smart-Devices for Clinical Photography,” a set of guidelines for digital professionalism in plastic surgery. 

The guidelines are available on the CMA’s PolicyBase.
